StumpWM is quickly approaching its 10th birthday.  I would really like to see it
make its 20th as well.  In order to do that I've had to make difficult decisions
about how we support and maintain the project.

You're welcome to fork the 1.0 release and continue developing it using whatever
VCS you prefer. You're also welcome to send critical patches to the 1.0 release
to this mailing list for the benefit of others. You may even leverage git for
some of these features:

I don't know what you mean by "proprietary software" stuwmpwm itself is GPL2,
github supports free software even if its a SaaS, as mentioned above you can
contribute without supporting or buying into github. CLISP and SBCL have
different licenses, but the benefits of SBCL outweigh the benefits of CLISP on
every other count. Further, neither CLISP or SBCL are proprietary software.
